Preliminary Aerodynamic Design of Centrifugal Compressors for Beginners
Join us for a free webinar Wednesday, May 29, 2019, at 12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. (U.S. Central Time).
Host: Grant Musgrove
There is a wealth of available information on design methods for centrifugal compress. The large amount of information, however, can be overwhelming and it is difficult to know where to start and what to do to achieve a compressor design.
In this webinar, a practical approach to compressor design is provided by way of a design case. First, the conceptual sizing process based on empirical data is used to determine initial estimates of compressor size and speed. Next, a preliminary design method is shown to define the impeller inlet and exit conditions. Then, it is shown how the preliminary design can be modified during one-dimensional performance calculations and off-design can be predicted. Finally, recommendations for a detailed design process are provided.
